You sure about that? I mean, ten million Zimbabwean dollars might go so far as buying you a newspaper. A NEWSPAPER! MIGHT!

I kept my mobile on the whole time though, and was told by my friends that the radiation was probably setting off some maching somewhere in the building and killing someone.
... wow. That's really bad. I'd have thought that they'd at least give you the five free-to-air channels for, uh, free.

Was that at Royal Melbourne? Because I walk past there to get to uni from the route 55, and judging by all the smokers always congregated at the entrance, I don't think they need your mobile phone to kill them - they're doing a fine job already by themselves, thank you very much!

I was seriously expecting the first question. I think the guy's an African Muslim, so I was afraid some moron would ask "did you meet Osama in Somalia?" or some such shit.

He should have a really interesting perspective on things though.

Nah, I was at the ENEMY'S CAMP - Monash Medical Centre. I live much closer to that place than to Royal Melbourne.

Speaking of which, I've always maintained that Melb Uni is the best place in Australia to get injured in - we're surrounded by hospitals. I've seen an ambulance pull out onto Royal Parade from the private hospital, make a u-turn and go straight into the uni! I still wonder if it'd have been more efficient for two people to run across the road with a stretcher...

I luckily enough can't actually remember the song properly. And I don't want any of you to remind me! Don't waste your time finding YouTube links - I won't click them!

The funniest thing is that I don't have a clue what the song is.

When I say her sig popped into my head, I mean literally. I had to figure out a tempo for the words, for goodness sakes!

The sport section's been cut, for two good reasons:

1. All the major sports feature those dirty white imperialists. Let's burn their farm houses and steal their businesses!
2. The Zimbabwean national cricket team, comprised solely of black Africans loyal to ZANU-PF, are so utterly dominant that all other countries are incapable of playing them and have launched a boycott of Zimbabwe so that they can play amongst themselves and acquire the necessary skills to compete. Lazy, untalented imperialist pigs!

HOW DARE YOU! You've betrayed us. I don't think I can ever speak to you now.

And haha, that's true. I remember when I had an asthma attack before an exam once, and the invigilators actually had to have a discussion about where it would be easiest to take me for medical treatment!

I think to get people from uni to the hospital, the ambos just need a portable siren that one can put on their head. Then they can safely run out into traffic with their stretcher and the siren on!
